Pelvic pain and organic dysfunction in a patient with low back pain: response to distractive manipulation: a case presentation.
Many patients with low back pain demonstrate pelvic symptomatology attributable to lower sacral nerve root compression. Lower sacral nerve root compression has been identified as a cause of pelvic pain and pelvic organ dysfunction. Pelvic symptomatology secondary to lower sacral nerve root compression is given. Lower sacral nerve root compression is most commonly the result of lumbosacral disc lesion. A case of low back pain accompanied with pelvic symptomatology is presented along with its response to distractive manipulation. chiropractic treatment may be an effective means of treating pelvic disorders secondary to lower sacral nerve root compression provided that the underlying disc lesion is dealt with, although further study is needed.
